I use tarot and oracle cards as tools for reflection and contemplation. Rather than divining the future, they are a way for me to look more deeply at the "now."

Spring Fever

From the Fountain Tarot, the Ace of Wands; from the Devas of Creation, Storm-maker:
          The Fountain's Ace of Wands looks like a prism; the booklet calls it 'passionate energy' and describes it as "a hot flash of focused intention." Coming right off yesterday's draw that indicated completion (the World), I laughed when I saw this one and thought, "That didn't take long." Human minds are programmed to create, discover and solve. They rarely rest unless we make an effort to allow them to settle in sleep or meditation. But much of what goes through them doesn't grab our attention long enough to excite us and inspire us to action. This Ace gets an added jolt of energy from the lightning of Storm-maker, a deva which delivers erratic but tremendous power. There is a note of caution not to hold on to this energy too long, but to mindfully channel it. It reminds me of the restlessness I begin to feel this time of year; here the azaleas have already bloomed and the dogwoods are right behind. Time for some mindful yard work (read: play) that brings joy without injury. I've already cleaned off the pollen and dust from my screened back porch, so drop by for a cup of coffee and some bird watching when you can.

  1. I may be dropping by for a quick visit this fall. You are on the agenda. Rob looked up the temp yesterday "do you know how hot it is there?" :)

    1. I would be honored to have you and your man for a visit! Heehee, it is a tad on the warm side down this way. :) Fall here should be like the beginning of summer for you guys. No rocker, but I'll save the glider or the zero gravity chair for you!
